Although Brazil’s principal wine trade fair, ‘Wine South America’, due to take place in late September, has been cancelled, the organisers have been busy arranging an alternative programme. Most interestingly this includes a ‘Circuito de Vinho’ – the opportunity to visit up to 14 wineries over six days.
With a focus exclusively on Rio Grande do Sul, small groups will be escorted on a mini-tour of this southerly region’s leading producers (including at least two represented by Go Brazil here in the UK, Pizzato & Don Guerino). Visitors will have direct access to the winemakers, while also enjoying tastings, dinners and masterclasses. Sadly we can’t be there (!) but read more here: www.winesa.com.br.
Online roundtable debates have also been organised, starting today 18/09. See: www.winesa.com.br/summit/
PS. online sessions will be in Portuguese only!
